Just Like Heaven

The Cure 🇬🇧

5th October 1987 (single), 25th May 1987 (LP)

Released as the third single from Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me - The Cure, this brought The Cure the sort of popularity in the US that they already had in Europe.

Really worth watching is Rick Beato's analysis of Just Like Heaven in What Makes This Song Great Ep 83 which pulls apart the song part by part, instrument by instrument. Check it out - it's why I'm keeping this write-up short - he says it better than I can.

Covers

Popular (though I'm not much of a fan of it) is a fairly faithful cover by Dinosaur Jr.

More worthy to my ears are covers by The Watson Twins and Katie Melua.
